What is your vision for 2022 and the 21st Century?
As the days lengthen, my imagination is heightened with the possibilities for the coming new year. One of my favorite songs of all time is John Lennon’s song, Imagine. The lyrics encourage us to imagine a world of peace, without materialism, without borders separating nations, and without religion. Imagine living for today, and like the future matters. When so many are struggling to see past the past and envision a better world, we need each other more than ever to stop the craziness.
Less stuff ~ More Love
I have a dream of how this might shake out.
We all have dreams.
What are yours?
Imagine how equitable distribution of wealth would improve our nation’s welfare. If corporations were taxed appropriately and billionaires and millionaires shifted from a mentality of financial maximization to one of social and environmental responsibility, everyone could benefit and prosper. Imagine if our government levies taxes its citizens appropriately and provides debt relief for the most vulnerable, including student loans and healthcare. Imagine if our tax dollars worked for ethical education and health care systems that served every social-economic bracket.! Imagine being labeled a humanitarian because of these views instead of weathering the negative connotations of being called a socialist, rather than a humanitarian.
I envision communities that prioritize the essentials: a clean and balanced economy that supports the diversity of people, has a reverence for culture, insists on fair wages, and has a respect for the ecological biodiversity necessary to survive on Earth. I envision shops that are well stocked with necessities, including locally made goods and handicrafts, rather than imported slave labor merchandise. Thrift stores and up-cycle shops are prevalent, and repair shops are always nearby. Yards are full of edible plants and medicinal herb gardens accented by delightful flowers. Public transportation and businesses are energy efficient, proud of having a low carbon footprint.
Yes, I have faith that humanity will rise above today’s hypocrisy by implementing greater social-economic education and having a fresh mindset around social and environmental responsibility. We will make a significant difference. Each day, you and I have the power to dream and to manifest 🌏 change.
The beginning of 2022 is a good time to reassess and reconsider our lives in the present moment, and ask ourselves some hard questions. As we face so much adversity, more people are evaluating what is suitable for them and redefining what is essential to be happy. We start by imagining how to be happy with less stuff and focus on our innate creativity to imagine what is possible.
If we could talk, I would ask you: how does your lifestyle and career contribute to Soulutions? How does your work affect your health, your family, community, and Mother Earth? How is your livelihood contributing to your health, to future generations?
To create a better world, we must make it our business to implement humanitarian and environmental Soulutions into our life. The costs of living in harmony with Nature are explicit; the first steps are to imagine something better and to live like the future matters. Just as our parents and grandparents dreamed of a better life, so must we. By living in harmony with Nature we can create a more robust, resilient world.
By learning from the past and our present situation, we can manifest something better. We can cultivate an abundant lifestyle and livelihood by adding the proper nutrients such as kindness, inclusiveness, generosity, progressive education, the arts, Nature’s wisdom, wholesome food, holistic principles, healthy lifestyles, and many other genuine regenerative exchanges.
The current 21st-century crises present us with extraordinary opportunities. We face in-common problems that will take collective action to transform a broken world. As we embrace a mindset based on integrity and respect, a creative renaissance will raise our souls. When we commune with one another and Nature, we are unstoppable.
2022 begs us to live a wholesome and prosperous life, embrace our hopes and dreams, and share our wisdom to enrich and cultivate the life energy and the love-light in others. I believe we’ve got this! The most important choices and shifts in our lives are right in front of us.
So, what is your vision for 2022 and for the 21st Century?
“Love yields the highest return. It keeps us joyful, vibrant, and prosperous.”
Success comes when we know:
Who we are,
♥️ What we love to do
🌏 and our purposeful ‘why.’
Big Love and Aloha ❤️
